What's a year-end list without a little controversy? Kendall Jenner is an incredibly polarizing figure in fashion and beyond, but love her or hate her you cannot deny that she has been everywhere this year. The full-on explosion of Jenner's modelling career cannot be ignored, regardless of whether or not you think she deserves the recognition.

It started back in the spring, when a virtually unrecognizable (and eyebrow-less) Jenner walked for Marc Jacobs in what some considered a rather scandalous outfit. In Paris she walked for Givenchy and Chanel, and from there the fashion industry went crazy with Kendall fever. She's landed coveted campaigns, walked in the top runway shows, and she's been featured in just about every major fashion magazine. At just nineteen years old Kendall Jenner has become one of the top models in the world, and that is no easy feat.

True, she's gotten by with a little help from her famous family, but personally I think she is talented. She's worked hard, and while she may not have started from the bottom, she is here and she is a fashion force to be reckoned with. Nepotism only gets you so far. Talent will take you further, and like it or not Jenner has it.

She's got fabulous personal style as well. She's a fan of black and white, and she's not afraid of playing up her best features. Whether she's wearing an elongating jumpsuit or up-to-there slits to show off her long legs, Jenner has already figured out what works best with her figure while maintaining a youthful personal style. It's a tricky thing that a lot of famous teens face—wanting to appear more mature than they really are—but luckily Jenner usually doesn't fall for the mature dressing trap. She looks gorgeous and current, and I know that 2015 will bring many more fashion successes both on the runway and on the red carpet.

Kendall Jenner is a controversial topic in the fashion model world. Do you think she has what it takes, or is her modelling career all thanks to her family?
